If flowers signal the start of spring, then let them colonize upon ruffled dresses, peasant shirts and ornamental denim jackets for fashion. Tanya Taylor, a Toronto-born, New York City-based designer, paints a picture of the spring season. An off the shoulder, floral-printed dress served as the culminating look for the designer’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, shown at New York Fashion Week. In the folds of the dress shown an assortment of colors: including deep red, orange, navy, yellow, blush pink and baby blue. In a similar fashion, a full-length spaghetti strapped dress garnished with tropical flowers and pairs of parallel-fringed stripes segmented the look. Vibrant colors magnified a number of prints, including stripes, polka dots, and crochet doilies. Together, they offered a statement worth a sweetheart’s bouquet of flowers. The flowery voice of the collection is equally a gift for the wearer and viewer and an expression of Taylor’s brand aesthetic. As much as we love the wide-leg pants and mid-lengths skirts assist she created, nothing compares to those dreamy party dresses.
